Casa Borrega, New Orleans’ best Mexican restaurant, is also known as a hub of Latin music, culture and cuisine throughout the city. Owner Hugo Montero is a renowned artist in his own right. In the summer of ’19 Hugo approached Phil the Tremolo King and asked him to form a cumbia /chicha band. Phil redcruited bassist Rene Coman ( the Iguanas, Alex Chilton, Lynn Drury ) and percussionist Isaac Johnston and on September 28 Los Tremolo Kings played their debut gig at Casa Borrega. They played a successful Friday night residence throughout 2019. They are taking a break from their Friday gig until March ’20 and are working on their first CD.
